This course dives into the current state of accessibility in WordPress. It looks at WordPress’ out-of-the-box accessibility features and examines over a dozen of its most common accessibility issues. Students will learn how to tackle WordPress theme management and accessibility plugins to include better accessibility support and understand how WordPress handles the creation of accessible content - including management of automated and manual testing of your sites.
As an open-source content management system, WordPress is a practical and popular platform to manage your organization’s digital presence or promote your organization’s goals. While it has many accessibility features , many changes can happen in design, development, and content entry that hinder rather than help with accessibility.
